The Birds

“The wise learn many things from their enemies.” –Aristophanes

Two Athenians guided by a crow and a jackdaw leave their city and all its arguments in order to look for a better life. This is the start of an idea one of them eventually has—that birds were the original gods and should build themselves a great city between heaven and earth. The nightingale calls the birds of the world who begin to assemble and start building that city in the sky.
